Get Over It Movie Review

Get Over It Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006

If you're looking for some fresh, fun teen romance - don't see Get Over It. If it wasn't for Colin Hanks I would have gotten up and left by the time the dog started humping the rubber plant.

If you're looking for some fresh, fun teen romance - don't see this movie. However, if you just want a few funny moments and a lot of been-there/done-that plot, Get Over It is for you. Or, if you simply love Colin Hanks(who doesn't?) it's also worth the ticket price.

Get Over It features some of the best talent in young Hollywood - Kirsten Dunst, Mila Kunis (That 70s Show) and the best kept secret: Colin Hanks. Unfortunately, even great creative talent like these guys can't pull off a script that borrows from every teen movie in the last 5 years.

Get Over It takes the play idea from Whatever it Takes, the vulgar comedy of American Pie and the romantic triangles of every teen movie Freddie Prinze has ever done. And I bet if Freddie hadn't given up teen films, they'd have cast him instead of Ben Foster.

The only bright part of this film is Colin Hanks' impressive and hilarious performance as Felix - the overprotective older brother of Kirsten Dunst's character, Kelly. Hanks is a gifted actor who steals every scene he is in. In fact the only way the audience can get through the melodramatic and irritating play finale is because the camera keeps cutting to Hanks. Even the slightest facial expression from him is genuinely funny.

Ben Foster as the lead was a bad cast. He doesn't have enough charisma to attract a fly let alone a hottie like Kirsten Dunst. The part about Striker (Shane West) being in a boy band was funny, but why did he have to have an accent? West wasn't very good at it and one minute he sounded English, the next Irish and sometimes even Australian - pick a dialect already!

Martin Short plays the overdramatic and annoying drama teacher and he does a good job as well - but not good enough to carry the show. Again, if it wasn't for Hanks I would have gotten up and left by the time the dog started humping the rubber plant.
